ControlTL MiniTT1 / FlexTT5 Canon Beta Firmware
Beta Firmware Version: 6.201
 
New Key Features:
 
Compatibility with Canon EOS 1D X:
 
The following Canon gear is now supported in this beta firmware release:

  • Canon EOS 1D X

The Canon 1D X will work in the ControlTL® system with some important operational considerations:

  • Manual power control only – No TTL. TTL is not currently available when using the 1D X with a MiniTT1 or FlexTT5. See additional information on the next page.
  • Manual power control operates normally, which includes the following functions:
  • Manual power control for X-sync
  • Manual power control for HSS
  • HyperSync®
  • Rear Curtain Sync
  • AC3 ZoneController with the zone set to “M” for Manual
  • Manual power control of compatible flashes like Einstein E640, AlienBees, White Lightning, and select Elinchrom flashes
  • Improved HyperSync performance. New HyperSync enhancements allow for the 1D X to perform well when shooting with studio flash above X-sync.
  • PowerTracking with the Canon 1D X works with “Full Manual” and the new “Full Manual + FEC” setting. Other PowerTracking settings are not available at this time.
